By the time children start the Reception class, we ensure that they are comfortable to recognise and link sound to letters. We help them to start reading by blending sounds and reading sight words. They are also encouraged to write simple words and form sentences. ICT is incorporated in all our classes. The children enjoy exploring and learning on computers through interactive games and activities. We ensure that ICT is enhancing their abilities to be developed in Mathematics, Literacy, other Languages, Understanding of World and also their physical skills. Music lesson, Spanish and Young writer’s skills are some of the extra-curricular activities that have been extended in the Early Years.
At Springfield Christian Preparatory School the children are exposed to challenging activities and are prompted to explore and enhance their critical thinking. Whilst enjoying their independent play and exploration, our children work amazingly towards the development of the seven areas of learning of the EYFS (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding of world).
